But here is a question for you...
If Jerry were so "pro-taping" then why was the Jerry Garcia Band always a strict NO TAPING event. Plus, until the early 80s tapers were often harassed and booted by GD personnel. I know the quote about "after I'm done with it, they can have it" but I beleive this was taken out of context and doesn't apply to this situation. Jerry never lived in a world of instant downloads of 100% digital media. What would his opinion be? Can any of us know for sure? It's a different world now. Maybe he liked the whole idea of people networking together and TRADING the music - creating a community. What would he have thought of us sitting alone at a computer downloading his music and never having to have any human interaction?

Oh and this site (the entire INTERNET ARCHIVE) is one of the best uses of bandwidth in existance...
